Amazing Collection of Miniature look-alike Pictures

Real world photographs can be converted into miniature sizes using a technique called "Tilt-shift Miniature faking". Wikipedia defines: " Tilt-Shift Miniature Faking is a process in which a photograph of a real location or object is manipulated so that it looks like a photograph of a scale-model miniature. By distorting the focus of the photo, the artist fools the eye into believing that the distances in the photograph are much smaller than they really are." Seems to be easy using a good landscape photo and Adobe Photoshop - I am going to try this.

I enjoy interacting with people and thoroughly enjoy watersports such as wakeboarding. What is your career ambition? I would love to work in the field of hosting. I love public speaking and social interaction. Describe where you were raised and what your childhood was like. I was raised in a small country town with a population of about 25,000. I feel I am very lucky to have been born and raised in Gladstone because I was able to experience the locality and friendships that small towns create. What do you want the judges to know about you? I am a fun-loving, outgoing, generally happy person who thoroughly enjoys life and wants to experience all that is available.

What flickr has done to me in these two years?

11-06-2005. 11th of June, 2005. The day - I joined flickr . In few days, I would be completing a complete two years. You may ask what significance these 2 years make in an ordinary person 's life. But, a lot for me. I picked up a friend's digicam for the first time in the year 2005. I dont remember what photographs I took in the early days - but they are craps, I would even laugh at my own photos. My special thanks to Abrar who risked his camera by giving it to me, and Anand, my fellow photographer (a pro in the making), to whom my sincere thanks and also few others who let me try my hands on their cameras. I owe you this success . Because, I have a free, basic account in flickr - the count of my photos always remain as 200. The last 200 uploaded photos will be visible to public (even to me). This is a snapshots of how flickr changed my life in these 2 years. Click on each picture to enlarge (or read more about that photo!) baby years in Flickr / Photography..... 1. Sky
